Everyone who has to do with it -- particularly John Hughes, the writer, director and producer of it -- should be ashamed.
The film has a desperately cutesy-pie charm that drips with flop sweat.
A disappointingly sentimental and shallow film from John Hughes about the homeless
A violent, offensive comedy.
Reprehensible from start to finish, and utterly manipulative and mindless to boot.
Any similarity between Curly Sue and Shirley Temple is practically intentional.
It's the first film in which Hughes flat-out sentimentalizes being rich--moreover, selling out.
Is this the same John Huges who wrote "The Breakfast Club"? I don't think so.
Cutesy homeless pair (a man and a little girl!!!) bum around from town to town (!) until they literally run in to a sympathetic lawyer (!!!), and that's just the set-up (unbelievable!). Dated because Hughes intentionally means to conjure up the days and spirit of Shirley Temple's joie d'vivre this only achieves a violation of audience goodwill. 3 year olds will disagree w/my assessment, I grant you that.
John Hughes got into making movies with kids in the 90s instead of teens, Home Alone was good, but this one was more mediocre, I think. I saw it a long time ago, I'd like to see it again and rewrite this.
Excellent film and I really enjoyed it. I agree with all the other people that this is a really great film. I doubt my rating will help matters but we'll see. It's a shame we haven't seen Porter in anything since this film. My only qualm is if they might have cut down slightly on the comedy, but it was still a great film. I wondered why this hadn't got a higher rating. Just shows, doesn't it?
I love curly sue!
